Israel’s castles date back thousands of years and are full of history and wonder say writers at Israel21c:

Nimrod Castle on the slopes of Mount Hermon in northern Israel looks like it was taken straight from the set of “Game of Thrones,” being medieval and all …

It fell out of use hundreds of years ago but still very much crowned the local landscape, even leading a visiting Mark Twain to call it “the stateliest ruin of that kind on earth.” Today it is a national park that is open to the public, who can enjoy an ancient stone inscription, interesting architecture and magnificent views.
